Need a non-religious officiant for Newport wedding

Hi - anyone have any suggestions on a non-religious officiant for a Newport wedding?  Have gotten a few suggestions for Frank Camera or Mike Kelleher, but am wondering if anyone has worked with either of these folks or has any other suggestions?  Thanks all!

    I just met with Frank the other day he was awesome!  And he gives you a copy of what he usually says during the ceremony and it was very spiritual!

    Thanks for the info - I spoke with him on the phone last week, and it's difficult to get a sense of someone's personality sometimes over the phone... Any chance you could elaborate as to why you think he's "awesome"?  Would love some first-hand input, as we live in FL and will be making a decision on an officiant w/o meeting them in person.  Thanks!

    We hired Dana Spencer for our upcoming Newport Wedding for $375. She will write the ceremony specifically for you.

    Do you have contact info for her?  Email address or website?  Thanks!

    We are going with Michael Egan "Heavenly Weddings". He is $375 as well.
    We met with 5 Officiants and he was the best one for us. He didn't seem like this was a "business" for him, he's seems happy to just be part of the special day.
    Plus he has a funny side to him and we like that a lot. Its going to make us really comfortable on our wedding day.

    Thanks!  Someone else recommend him to us as well (Elaine at Atlantic Beach Club, where we're doing our rehearsal dinner).  Will have to look him up!

    Try Steve Earle - he takes the time to personalize your wedding, and puts a lot of thought and effort into what he says.  His email is [email protected] (the Maskerchugg is a river that runs through his backyard in East Greenwich....I thought it was a weird name until I asked :) )

    We were really pleased with the ceremony.  Both my husband and I are not religious, so he carefully choose his words.

    Good luck!
